    This week in Toronto, Canada (June 23-28), at the Scotiabank Theatre the Transforming For SickKids charity group is holding a raffle event to raise money for the Therapeutic Clown Program at Toronto Sick Kids Hospital.

    You can check out their site on Transforming For SickKids -

    They've got an absolutely astonishing array of prizes, donated by Hasbro, as well as the entire collection of the gentleman running the. You can see a gallery of the prizes here.

    So if you're going to go see the movie in downtown Toronto this weekend, be sure to stop by their booth.

    I don't know if this violates the "no promoting other people's websites" rule, but this seemed like a really worthwhile cause to me, so I figured I'd give posting it here a shot.

    ADDITIONAL INFO FROM TRANSFORMING FOR SICKKIDS:

    "I have Hasbro Canada as our main sponsor and they donated over 16 BOXES worth of toys from all of their lines, so there's a little something for everyone.

    Here's a Flickr Slideshow of the prizes we have so far.

    I'm also donating my ENTIRE personal collection (minus Masterpiece Optimus Prime.. he's a keeper for this cause. That's how serious I am.

    My target is $25,000 which is a bit insane, but I'm kind of an insane guy


    The tickets span anywhere between $10 to $50 with your odds increasing with the more tickets you buy.

    You can participate in 2 ways. You can either participate in the Promotional Draw (think raffle) or you can donate straight up and get a tax receipt.


    For all the info and progress we've made in terms of Twitter updates, blog posts and videos you can visit Transforming For SickKids -

    If this is something that resonates with you, please share with your friends, donate, or if you're in Toronto, drop by Scotiabank Theatre and say Hi!

    I'll be there beginning tonight at Scotiabank Theatre and everyday afterward till June 28th. Hope to see some faces and tell me that you're from the Cybertron.ca / TFW2005 forums. I'd like to take a pic with you guys and put it on the blog!

    Hope to connect with all of you soon!

    Warmest,
